The Mets are in talks with at least four teams.

One of the main goals for the Mets at the winter meetings is to unload either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda, and they have already begun trying to do so.

MLB.com's Adam McAlvy said the Brewers and Mets met to discuss the Mets' group of first baseman. The Brewers, who expressed interest in Davis and Duda last month, are one at least four teams inquiring about Ike Davis.

With reports from earlier today that the Brewers are looking at Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison, it's clear that Milwaukee wants to upgrade at first base. No team got worse production (64 wRC+) from their first basemen than the Brewers in 2013.

While the two teams seem like a fit, it's unclear if a deal can get done. After the Brewers' trade of Norichika Aoki, there isn't an obvious one-for-one swap, unless the Brewers are willing to deal one of their starting pitchers for Davis.
